Glued Straw Segment to Utility Arm Mystery Project, Harvested Wire

The utility arm mystery project gets a little more mysterious.

Today I moved to the straw phase of the project. I cut a small circular segment of styrene, and glued it to the end of a segment of a drinking straw.

I then glued the segment of straw to the back of the styrene utility arm glove.

I used a razor blade to trim some excess styrene. It's just about ready for primer.

Finally, I harvested some wire from an old wall transformer. Rather than just snip the wire, I did the civilized thing and desoldered it. Of course, to do this, I had to do the uncivilized thing and hacksaw into it.

Why would I need wire? This thing just keeps getting more mysterious.
